Windows 8.1 App Watch: Snap Attack

Two Word games in row? I told you word puzzle game are the hottest thing in mobile at the moment. And after Master of Words, it’s time for another quality title, this time from Microsoft.

Snap Attack is the latest game that the company has just launched for Windows 8.1 device, and it utilizes the same tile-based formula of the popular Wordament game that is available for computers, tablets and smartphones.

And the idea behind this one is the same too — you score points by building words using the letters that are available. The more words you create, the higher your tally.

“Wordament Snap Attack® is a brand-new, fast-paced word-building tournament that challenges your brain in 2 1/2-minute rounds. Players from around the world compete on the same board, using the same clock, making as many Snaps as possible. At the end of each round, a real-time leaderboard shows how all participants ranked by score.”

Technically a sequel to the hit game, this one actually builds upon Wordament by limiting users to snap on a board within a time limit of two-and-a-half minutes. It also features some preset letters that are included on the board from the start.

Speaking of boards, this is the first game to offer Xbox Live achievements and leaderboards on all platforms. And hopefully this is something that more games offer.

The free game is available on Windows platforms exclusively, though iOS and Android releases could not be discounted in the near future. And while the banner ads are a little too blatant, the presentations and feature sets make this a win. On all processors, obviously, x86, x64 and ARM.

    2.5 minute rounds and players all around the world on the same board. That’s intriguing enough for me to download! Thank you for the spotlight.

    Master of words costs money for the full version. You highlighted that yesterday. Based on both App Watches, this app seems to be better overall and it’s free for the full version. Seems like this is the clear winner.
